Exodus 20:24

24An altar of earth you shall make for me and sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings, your sheep and your oxen. a  In every place where I cause my name to be remembered I will come to you and b  bless you.

Judges 6:26

26and build an altar to the  Lord your God on the top of the c  stronghold here, with stones laid in due order. Then take the second bull and offer it as a burnt offering with the wood of the Asherah that you shall cut down.”

Judges 21:4

4And the next day the people rose early and d  built there an altar and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings.

1 Samuel 7:9-17

9So Samuel took a nursing lamb and offered it as a whole burnt offering to the  Lord. And e  Samuel cried out to the  Lord for Israel, and the  Lord answered him. 10As Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to attack Israel. f  But the  Lord thundered with a mighty sound that day against the Philistines and threw them into confusion, and they were defeated before Israel. 11And the men of Israel went out from Mizpah and pursued the Philistines and struck them, as far as below Beth-car.

12Then Samuel g  took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen
Hebrew; Septuagint, Syriac Jeshanah
and called its name Ebenezer;
 Ebenezer means stone of help
for he said, “Till now the  Lord has helped us.”
13 j  So the Philistines were subdued and did not again enter the territory of Israel. And the hand of the  Lord was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel. 14The cities that the Philistines had taken from Israel were restored to Israel, from Ekron to Gath, and Israel delivered their territory from the hand of the Philistines. There was peace also between Israel and the Amorites.

15 k  Samuel judged Israel all the days of his life. 16And he went on a circuit year by year to Bethel, Gilgal, and Mizpah. And he judged Israel in all these places. 17Then he would return to l  Ramah, for his home was there, and there also he judged Israel. m  And he built there an altar to the  Lord.

1 Samuel 11:5

5Now, behold, Saul was coming from the field behind the oxen. And Saul said, “What is wrong with the people, that they are weeping?” So they told him the news of the men of Jabesh.

1 Samuel 20:29

29He said, ‘Let me go, for our clan holds a sacrifice in the city, and my brother has commanded me to be there. So now, if I have found favor in your eyes, let me get away and see my brothers.’ For this reason he has not come to the king’s table.”

2 Samuel 24:18

18And Gad came that day to David and said to him, “Go up, raise an altar to the  Lord on the threshing floor of n  Araunah the Jebusite.”

2 Samuel 24:22

22Then Araunah said to David, “Let my lord the king take and offer up what seems good to him. Here are the oxen for the burnt offering and the o  threshing sledges and the yokes of the oxen for the wood.

2 Samuel 24:25
